The diverse programming, comfortable seats, excellent projection and sound systems, and reasonable price make this Santa Fe's best film art house along with the CCA Cinematique and the Jean Cocteau.

This small venue offers wonderful cinema! Indy, artsy, and international films are a specialty with students from the Santa Fe College of Art and Design doing all of the work. What a great experience for them and for us!

WE were looking for an independent movie and found it on the campus of Univ. of Santa Fe, Art and Design School. When we had given up finding where to see A Trip to Italy, we saw the ad in the local paper. While its not easy to find the campus, its harder to find the delightful theatre. Once there,... More

This is a one room theater on the SFUAD campus. It has an interesting array of movies you won't find at the multi-plex and there is a small concession stand. Such a more peaceful and enjoyable experience than the big theatres. Highly recommend.

This review is not about a particular film I saw at the Screen, but just a shout out to a small, independent theater that does a great job providing what I consider to be necessary art films that stimulate in ways other than and, to me, more importantly than, the big box office blockbuster action films do. The theater is... More

We have seen probably half a dozen movies a year at this wonderful venue. It's never crowded, they get special titles you won't see in the multiplex, and it feels a bit like you're in a big city art house.

The theater is a little difficult to find but once you are there, it is very easy to get through paying and in to your seat. Like has been said, good sound, good view, good audience, and unusual films. I saw "Locke" and loved it. I don't know that it will be shown anywhere else I am. I am glad... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how modern the facilities are The Screen. Incredibly tidy and well kept. Not your typical audience, e.g. they are there to watch the film.

We literally stumbled onto this little arts theater while touring the campus of Santa Fe University of Art and Design. We walked inside and purchased tickets for "Le Weekend" and were soo glad we did. The movie was laugh out loud hilarious, thought provoking, with moments of poignant, painful revelation. The staff were very friendly and (gasp) happy to answer... More
